What Customers say about us…

“Clever Clogg’s put me through their fast tracked programme making sure I did not have to go through the basics as I already have a lot of experience. This also saved me money. I have learnt new concepts on the Advanced course and would advice anyone who is considering they would like to provide more indepth services for their clients, for example Limited companies, Partnerships and year end support to take this course.”



Laura Howard




“I took on my training with Clever Cloggs based purely on recommendation. I had previously studied up to level 2 with another provider.  I have not looked back since my level 3 training(2010). I now have my own successful bookkeeping business and work with helping others who are looking to develop their bookkeeping skills.  I can truly say sharing good experiences with others is the only real way to find out about a service .

I was introduced to  Nathalie Barr from Clever Cloggs at a business event.  I also attended a workshops in Birmingham Sept 2012. Learnt lots about how I could improve my own business and enjoyed meeting others who shared tips and ideas. Nathalie is so professional and anyone who knows her has lots of good things to say about her and Clever Cloggs. Nathalie’s workshop was excellent, she made everyone feel at ease. Like a lot of people, when I look to  buy anything I always ask around and look at feedback comments. e.g. Tripadvisor or Amazon. I would highly recommend Clever Cloggs to anyone looking for quality bookkeeping training courses!
